Bio

Timothy Carroll returns to Brisbane having spent 12 months based in Sweden playing shows in Paris, Berlin, Dublin, Stockholm and the Glatonsunbury festival in the UK. While overseas Carroll also wrote and recorded a collection of new demos in Stockholm and Berlin and is currently preparing for a mid year release of his sophomore album. Carroll’s next record sees him teaming up with increasingly reclusive producer Matt Redlich (Hungry kids of Hungary, Ball Park Music, Emma Louise) and pushing into heavier electric pallet of tones influenced by the duelling guitars lines of Neil Young and driving melodies of acts like MIdlake and Villagers. The first release ‘If I were you’ is a freight train of a song building layer upon layer of sounds in union whilst Carroll's stark vocals invoke scenes of storming seas and bolting mares. Accompanied with a filmclip by renowned filmmaker Tim Lovett of Breeder Studios the track will see Carroll touring the East Coast and is available for free download here.

A beautiful acoustic pop song. It's classic prouction, really warm and rich, with every sound given space to breath. Carroll's a really talented vocalist with an impressive range and honest delivery. This is the opening song from his new EP - a 5 tracker worth a listen if you're a fan of acts like Patrick Watson and The Panics.

We first saw Tim live at the fantastic Tasmanian Circus Festival this year and his music sent us into fabulous emotional spellbound messes!! The melancoly in his voice was wonderfully refreshing and beautifully executed. Have to say, he's as good if not better than Angus and Julia Stone. In fact Tim's melodies are usually far better.

We first saw Tim live at the fantastic Tasmanian Circus Festival this year and his music sent us into fabulous emotional spellbound messes!! The melancoly in his voice was wonderfully refreshing and beautifully executed. Have to say, he's as good if not better than Angus and Julia Stone. In fact Tim's melodies are usually far better. We live in London and his CD "For Bread and Circuses" is a feast of gorgeous uncluttered songs that are beautiful and original. Can't wait to see Tim again in concert, hope he makes it to the "Royal Festival Hall" here in London just as Angus and Julia Stone did last year in 2010. He deserves stardom and I hope it comes sooner than later. Tim, if you see this, Bonjour, and thanks for a great breakfast at Golconda in Feb this year. Tim and Catherine, MAY2011
